like bob costas, even rupert murdoch, mill o'reilly talking about sensible measures. the american people want to solve this problem. sometimes it's takes an event like this to catalyze thing. in 1989 there was a horrible school shooting where 35 people were shot in stockton, california. that was a cat liss soon after that. we need to push, and it requires the american public speaking up and maybing their voice heard. but this is a conversation that the american public wants to have. and we need to make sure that congress and the president want to have it too. >> congressman nadler, do you stand with the mayor of new york when he says that what we have not seen is leadership from the white house and not from the congress? >> we certainly haven't seen leadership on this issue in a good number of years. i was heartened that the president said today that we have to take meaningful action. unless that's simply empty rhetoric, that means that the president is thinking, at least, of taking the lead and really pushing congress on this, which is what it will take. this -- we -- these incid
bob goodlatte of virginia is the new chairman of the house judiciary committee. he is the highest ranking republican with control over gun regulations. gun safety regulation you think it's on his mind? no way. sheer what he says. we're going the take a look at -- how many times do you hear people say we're going to take a look at it. this is what he says. take a look at what happened there and what can be done to help avoid it in the future. but gun control is not going to be something that i would support. so i ask where have the republicans been? meanwhile, you have state officials in states out there like texas. their governor, rick perry, saying the solution is to do what? put guns in the hands of the teachers? just what they want to do. republican lawmakers in other states like oklahoma, nevada, south dakota and texas, calling for teachers to become enforcers in the classroom. it's hard to believe how meaningful legislation can be passed when a party still opposes laws to make us safer. time is of the essence. president obama ended his comments today by reading a list of amer
. that was ups. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you found a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. >>> government jobs taking away all guns. but that's not what i'm saying. i would just think that the founding fathers could have foreseen automatic weapons coming down the pike. i doubt it. i don't think they were thinking about that when they wrote the second amendment. people change, times change. nobody is going to be grabbing your gun but you might want to make sure that you are not mentally ill before you get it. the second amendment allowed muskets, not semiautomatic assault rifles nor pistols with large clips. here, here on that one. and shannon tweets, why can't all of our constitutional rights be subjected to limits except the ones conferred by the second amendment? we like that one, too. keep your thoughts coming on
himself on having the facts. >> uaw president bob king blamed the koch brothers for helping ram through this legislation. do you believe that? what role did the koch brothers, if any play in all of this? >> it's hard for me to know. i think there is a lot of big money involved. i see this prosperity america. i think that's their outfit. i see equipment and tents and so on. how much big money is flowing around, i don't know. i think they're all over. ed, you have been on this before. we have to get the big corporate money out of politics. this is disgusting. this is a bastardization of our democracy that is taking place. i tell you, democracy is under attack. we have to get the big corporate money out. it's disgusting to think the koch brothers' long arm and big money can make it happen. if it can happen in michigan, it can happen anywhere. working people are under attack. i believe there will be repercussions. >> in what way? >> i think the governor is making a huge mistake. i believe -- i know '14 is a ways off. but look, this governor did not campaign on this. he said very little abou
, bob. we did. got it. >>> this is an outrage. we are killing each other. and we're the only industrialized country in the world doing it. >> new york mayor michael bloombe bloomberg, earlier today, leading the charge on gun control. and over the weekend, bloomberg challenged the notion that pushing for tougher laws is impossible, giving the influence of the nra. >> but, today, the nra's power is so vastly overrated. the public, when you do the polls, they want to stop this carnage. >> today, the mayor echoed those sediments calling out elected officials on both sides. >> this is not a partisan issue. this is just a bunch of people who i think are cowed by the nra. and as i said yesterday, if you think the nra has power, just remember, the number one priority was to defeat barack obama. last time i checked, he's going to be innaug rated again. >> earlier protesters gathered outside the offices in washington. the nra, again, declined to comment. the group's social media interaction has come to a halt. the nra had stopped tweeting. and it also took down its facebook page on fri
